been a huge amount of change in there has not been a huge amount of change in the weather since the start of 2019, with high pressure off and in charge, this was the scene on friday. in highland scotland. we had heavy showers around, rainbows captured by our weather watchers and there will be more in the forecast over the next couple of days. today we have high pressure, would visit high sitting towards the south—west and what we haveis towards the south—west and what we have is weather fronts making their way gradually south across the uk. introducing milder air so you can see the yellow colour at least for a time as we head through the next few days. the cold air mass not far away, that will become stronger as we head into next week. let's get back to saturday, we have a day of sunshine and showers, and it'll rain clearing away from southern england and then heavy downpours pushing into much of northern and western scotland, heavy showers also to north—west england and north wales. in the south—east you are more likely to sell it —— stay dry, northern ireland largely dry, average averages for this time in january. saturday night we will keep
those heavy showers across north and west scotland, one or two further south across the country with a fair amount of cloud, we are in for a mild and frost free night as we go into the early hours of sunday. sunday will be a particular windy day, breezy on saturday but i sunday these isobars tighten so we will see gusty winds piling in from the north—west, more showers around two, gusts up to 40—50 mph, but italy across northern and western scotland. southern and eastern parts of the uk will have the lion ‘s share of the sunshine, more showers packing into the north—west, temperatures are leather — 12 degrees, a very mild day to come on sunday but you will notice the strength of the breeze. by monday high—pressure starts to move in once again from the west, that will ease winds down somewhat, not as blustery through the course of monday. more sunshine on offer and fewer showers compared to the weekend, so an improved picture for north and west scotla nd improved picture for north and west scotland and northern ireland, a
little cool around the east coast where you have breeze coming in from the north sea. and then into tuesday, what we have got is some rain that could be quite consistent across the western scotland, this slow—moving front will sit there all day, some heavy rain mounting up across scotland, elsewhere dry story, elsewhere it is mild, temperatures in double figures across the board, lighter winds further south. this front will bring that persistent rain across scotland through the day on tuesday, overnight into wednesday this cold front starts to make its way a little further south across the country, so that rain will push into parts of central england, wales, followed by some heavy showers rattling in on the north—westerly breeze from the north—west. change during the course of wednesday as that cold front makes its way southwards across the country, we are back into single figures the most places, there will be some sunshine around, we could see temperatures easing towards the south—east. later next week we see, one that cold front gets out of the way is the doors opening to a more
nor the —— northerly influenced to oui’ nor the —— northerly influenced to our weather, a cold spell and then into next weekend, the weather front looks like it bumps into that cold air, moving infrom looks like it bumps into that cold air, moving in from the atlantic. a wintry flavour next week into next weekend, arcola spell of weather, a return to night—time frosts for some of us and there is a chance of wintry showers at times, even if it is no fall over the higher ground in the north. —— a bit of snow. hello, this is bbc news. we will be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first the headlines: the government announces further changes to the rollout of universal credit, as four single working mothers win a high court challenge over the scheme. andy murray, one of britain's greatest ever sportsmen, says he is retiring from tennis because of injury. president trump says he will not declare a national emergency, at least for now, as a way
of ending his budget standoff with congress. 1,000 jobs could go at the ford engine plant in south wales over the next two years, under a major restructuring plan for the company's european operations. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are are the broadcaster john stapleton and the political correspondent at the evening standard kate proctor. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. let's begin with the times, where the warnings from top tory donors that brexit may never happen are their main story. the i says that, even if the prime minister wins the vote on her deal next tuesday, the departure date of the uk from the eu
could still be delayed. the daily mail features the transport secretary's comment that stopping brexit could lead to a rise in far—right extremist groups. the daily telegraph has a picture of a tearful andy murray on its front page, and the paper's top story is the plan to scrap shorter prison sentences, as some say they tend to lead to higher reoffending rates. the independent also has andy murry on its front page, pictured in happier times. the main story is the acknowledgement by some senior ministers that brexit may have to be delayed. the guardian reveals that a new study appears to show that air pollution is as likely to cause a pregnant woman to miscarry as smoking. the financial times says the japanese firm hitachi is to cancel plans for a nuclear power station in wales, putting the uks energy strategy under serious strain. and the mirror features
the desperate plight of the parents of baby carter cookson, who will die in weeks if a new heart isn't found for him. those are the front pages. and you know where we are going to go, we will start off with brexit. do you wa nt to will start off with brexit. do you want to kick us off, kate, with the independent? everyday we have brexit front pages but quite a significant development which the independent has put on their front page. senior ministers think brexit will be delayed, there has been lots of discussion within the cabinet, they have been anonymous, but they have signalled that they don't think it is possible for britain to leave on 29 march. i think that is fading fast and they think there is too much legislation to get through parliament over the next few weeks,
and itjust parliament over the next few weeks, and it just means parliament over the next few weeks, and itjust means it is going to be impossible to actually reach that deadline. so that means there might be an extension to article 50. if that happens, you need all the eu states to agree to it. so we might have a delay, the eu might agree to it, and it is what happens after that, and it is still a very complex sequence that, and it is still a very complex sequence to follow. i am wondering what will delay achieve? is there perhaps an indication in the last few days from certain eu countries that maybe they will be coming around to realise that britain crashing out of the eu will be worse for them than it was for us and maybe there was a hint that there will be some concessions, but officially there is no sign of any concessions. so what is the delay going to achieve? what is she going to achieve by going back and is she going to change the minds of many of her own party about this deal, whatever form it comes up her own party about this deal, whateverform it comes up in, in its present form or amended? i can't see any evidence that that will happen, but who knows? what do you think?
this is yourjob, you are our source of great information. what is the buzz amongst the hacks in the westminster bubble? so if the vote fails, then there are some who think that actually they will get some concessions from europe, and they think that might come afterwards, or it may even come before the vote, so europe might make some amendments, and that means it would go back again for another vote. and i think there are some who think that if theresa may goes for a second time she would at that point get lots of mps to sort of gather around her deal and get it through, sort of limp through. and then there are other people who think there should bea other people who think there should be a series of indicative votes, basically get mps to say, well, if you don't like theresa may's model, what do you actually want? do you wa nt what do you actually want? do you want a second referendum, do you wa nt to want a second referendum, do you want to eea type model, norway type model? but how would that work? and
how would you decide who is the winner? well, if the most mps go for... we are still asking the questions, the really key but simple questions, the really key but simple questions about this, and we are coming so close to that deadline. but the consensus is she is not going to get it passed through on tuesday. i don't think so, and then she now has three days to come back with a plan b and i think over the next few days we are going to hear lots more stories about infighting amongst the cabinet, because they are not going to be able to congregate around a plan b. bbc survey says there is now 200 people in the house opposed to it, as it stands at the moment. what do you make of the idea that civil servants are being redeployed ? make of the idea that civil servants are being redeployed? well, hundreds of them. i saw that, they have been redeployed to prepare britain in case we crash out with no deal. what is happening to the work they do normally? is the country grinding to
a halt in those areas? they are paid by the government to do a specific job, pensions or whatever, and are being told to do something completely different from here on end. what is happening to their jobs? how are we being served?m end. what is happening to their jobs? how are we being served? it is often said this is the biggest thing britain has had to deal with since the second world war, and when you start deploying the civil service from their dayjobs into brexit, it does show the scale of it. they have had to learn very quickly to carry out something that is completely unprecedented. and it may never happen. in the times, we are looking at figures, three, four, five, nearly £6 million, some of the figures which are quoted in donations to the leave campaign, and there is now the feeling that it is not going to happen. well, according to one hedge fund manager, his company has given £870,000 to the campaign, and he is saying he
doesn't think it is going to happen. anotherformer manager doesn't think it is going to happen. another former manager has contributed to the brexit campaign, saying he is fearful it will be nothing like the brexit they imagined, someone that a lot of people may have heard about, peter hargreaves, the hind a company called hargreaves la nsdown hargreaves, the hind a company called hargreaves lansdown —— behind. his quote was, and this is a liberal quote, i have totally given up, iam liberal quote, i have totally given up, i am in total despair, liberal quote, i have totally given up, iam in total despair, i don't think brexit will happen at all. one interesting fact from another paper, in relation to all this, is that one survey shows increasing numbers of tory voters, and actually increasing numbers of labour voters, are in favour of mrs may's deal, but u nfortu nately for favour of mrs may's deal, but unfortunately for mrs may, the vast majority of people in the house of commons most certainly are not. this group of donors must be seething, they have put millions of pounds into the leave campaign and into brexit, and it clearly hasn't turned
out in any way, shape or form how they planned it to be. who is not seething about this? exactly, when you have millions of pounds at stake it isa you have millions of pounds at stake it is a really significant issue, andi it is a really significant issue, and i am not surprised that they are being so vocal about it. what if it is conservative party donors who are unhappy with the way brexit is going, then ultimately if they are not unhappy with theresa may and the way she has managed brexit, it is really a judgement on her. let's turn to the guardian, and air pollution has been one of the big stories at bbc today, linked for the first time with a death certificate. the story here is that there may well be a link between that... well, the story you are referring to is the story you are referring to is the story you are referring to is the story of a very courageous lady. so she is the mother. and her
daughter died, and her mother has contended for a long time that pollution was caused. they live near the south circular, one of the busiest roads in london, and she has contended for a long time that pollution may be a cause of that and has finally got permission to apply for a new inquest. that is a big ra ke for a new inquest. that is a big rake through for her. i saw her earlier on bbc, a highly articulate woman, expressing a very firm point of view, and hats off to herfor conducting that campaign on behalf of her daughter. in addition to that, there is this story, as you rightly say, in the guardian saying that air pollution is as likely to raise the risk of miscarriage as smoking, according to research in the united states, in salt lake city. it has been over a long time it increases the risk of premature birth and birth weight but we have never heard it linked so definitely. it will be terrifying for women to read this. you think how many people
stop smoking during pregnancy and how seriously they take it, other people won't smoke around pregnant women, and then to think that just the airyou are women, and then to think that just the air you are breathing as you are walking to work is so toxic that it can actually harm your baby, it is really alarming. they have described this research is profound and i think this is a really significant story. sadiq khan, the mayor of london, has been on top of this for a while, there are other cities where levels of pollution are illegal, basically. they are massively over the legal limit. and it has gone to brazil, italy, mongolia, it is worth reading. let's turn to the telegraph, and an end to jail sentences under six months. yes, this is an idea being put forward by the prisons minister and i think it makes a lot of sense. his quote is that these short—term sentences, for things like burglary, et cetera. burglary and shoplifting. long enough to do damage, not long
enough to actually heal you. his argument is, and i think it holds a lot of water, you put people in prison for six months, they met bad people inside prisons, they get bad habits, maybe they lose theirjobs, maybe their marriage gets into difficulty, they come out and they reoffend and they reoffend more quickly than people serving long—term prison sentences. he says what is the point of sending them to jail? rehabilitate them in the community, train them in the community, train them in the community to change their ways, ease up community to change their ways, ease up the tension and the overcrowding in prisons, which is a massive, massive problem. anthony is a a no—brainer. massive problem. anthony is a a no-brainer. stuart has really taken his brief as prison minister xtree me seriously and put a lot of thought into doing things differently, and the getting himself very —— giving himself very punishing targets —— extremely seriously. he has staked his career on making prison reform a success and he wants to turn around ten prisons across the uk to reduce violence and drug use and one thing he has looked at is introducing body scanners, as well, to try and stop
drugs being brought into prison. so he is taking some drastic measures andi he is taking some drastic measures and i know people will be a little bit alarmed at the thought that criminals are not going to be given prison sentences but it has been very effective in scotland, that is partly where they have taken this model from. i think if you can better rehabilitate somebody, i think that is what it is all about, really. and cheaper. so is catching them before they develop into hard criminals, isn't it? awaron the a war on the sale of treats, to tackle obesity, is it treats' fault? these stories come around so much, it is how do we deal with britain's obesity crisis, particular among young children. it is saying here that some of the measures being looked at by the department of health is trying to remove deals, like buy one get one free deals,
where you would actually spend a bit more but end up with so much more fatty, sugary, unhealthy foods, more than is necessary, more than you need. they are trying to curb people's shopping habits, and all of this is to try and curb type 2 diabetes, the nhs spends 10% of its budget on diabetes. i think it is probably quite a good idea if you can change the way people shop, is terribly to the better. but lots of criticism in here about this being over the top, nanny state.|j criticism in here about this being over the top, nanny state. i know you are a tough mum because you told us you are a tough mum because you told us about that earlier... (laughs). when you get to the shops and there isa when you get to the shops and there is a whole range of chocolate and suites, and your child says 0k, is a whole range of chocolate and suites, and your child says ok, you don't, but lots of people do. apparently seven out of ten mums do. kids leaving primary school who are obese, we have a huge, huge problem here. it is one of a number of
things that we need to do. taxpayers alliance is saying this is patronising, nannying and it rightly angers people. story of the day, sir andy murray. he announced that backrest —— brea kfasttime andy murray. he announced that backrest —— breakfasttime in australia the fact that the australians —— the australian open will possibly be his last because he isn't so much pain. it was agonising to watch. sir murray was so upset, he had to leave the platform at one stage an excuse himself, still clearly upset, talk about the fact that he wants to make wimbledon next year but he might not any broker began. don't forget, this is a guy who come the kid who survived the dunblane massacre, he has been playing tennis since he was knee—high to a grasshopper, slogged and slogged, certainly the best tennis player we have ever had an
arguably one of, if not the best sportsmen we have had, and to give it up at the age of 30 or 31, very moving. a lot of the papers have gone for that picture of him, that first wimbledon win, and that is what we have here in the back of the times, when he is holding the cup, it is so emotional that him, but it was the whole country. it was such an time watching that matched, and i am nota an time watching that matched, and i am not a tennis fan but i remember thinking, could we do this are the country, it was very inspiring. thinking, could we do this are the country, it was very inspiringm is the end of a fantastic sporting era theme, but like billiejean king said, —— era for him, like she said, there is a lot waiting for him. where would you like to see him moving into? here at the bbc! he will be signed up by teatime. commentary, but so much more than that, he has written some amazing
pieces about gender equality and sport, i think if he can take more ofa sport, i think if he can take more of a strategic role in making sure that women and guys are treated the same in sport and being an authority on that, that would be a powerful thing for him to do with the rest of his career. it is interesting to know that he is working with young talent, i did not know that. his academy, that is fantastic news. great ambassador to his sport.l academy, that is fantastic news. great ambassador to his sport. a lot of people are learning about how difficult it is to play tennis on the body. it is lovely to see you both, thank you so much. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it is all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers, and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. a big thank you to my guests this evening, the broadcaster john stapleton and kate proctor from the evening standard. and from all of us, goodnight.
good evening, here's your latest sports news. andy murray, one of britain's greatest ever sportsmen, broke down in tears as he announced he's retiring from tennis. he was hoping to make it to his home grand slam at wimbledon injune, but admitted that the australian 0pen, which begins next week, could be his last tournament. the former world number one has been struggling for months to recover from hip surgery. but sue barker says he will go down as one of the greats in british sporting history. he is definitely the greatest we have had the manner in which he has
won matches, he digs out matches when it looks like he is down, he manages to find a way to win, he has a great competitor. he is an unbelievable athlete, which he was not a particularly natural athlete, he has worked so hard and i have witnessed that, how hard he has worked to get his body superfit, knowing that no—one can beat him in five sets because they will run out of energy. he was such an incredible athlete the way he dealt with the pressure, and it was immense pressure, and it was immense pressure, winning in 2013 at first time he won wimbledon, i don't know how he did that, because i was a crumbling wreck just thinking how he did that, because i was a crumbling wreckjust thinking about it, and he went out and beat novak djokovic and beating a great player like that to win for the first time in 77 years, it was a moment that all of us will member forever. —— rememberforever. leeds united head coach marcelo bielsa has admitted sending one of his staff to spy on a derby county training session ahead of tonight's game between the two clubs. the fa says it's investigating after derby manager frank lampard's preparations for the match were disrupted yesterday,
when a man was caught acting suspiciously outside the club's training facility. bielsa has said: well, bielsa's side put all the pre—match talk to bed with a 2—0 win over derby at elland road. it means the championship leaders increase their lead at the top of the table to five points ahead of the weekend's games. nick parrott was watching. keeping an eye on the opposition is vital if you want success, but trying to tea what you shouldn't can have consequences. police involvement with spy gate is over, but marcelo melo three may only get to breathe a sigh of relief if derby
forgive him. revenge was served up by not either derby manager. less than a minute in the reverie pointed to the spot but his assistant flag for offside. as spies would say, a false flag. leeds did not need inside knowledge, just some quick thinking and a potent marksman in the shape of kemar roofe. while that was elegant their second was opportunistic. derby's defence and disarray as jack harrison bounced a minute into the second half. there we re minute into the second half. there were no more goals but plenty more controversy. both teams might argue they should have had penalties. after this match, you wonder why leeds felt the need to spy on derby. after this match, you wonder why well this is how it now looks in the championship. norwich could close leeds' gap back to two again with a win at west brom tomorrow. there's currentlyjust six points between them in second and derby in sixth. munster have taken a big step towards the quarterfinals of the champions cup with a 111—15 win at gloucester. munster fly—half joe carbery scored 26—points to outshine the returning
danny cipriani on the other side. he also set up tries for rory scannell and this one in the second half for andrew conway. the result ends gloucester‘s chances of qualifying from pool 2 for the next round. that's all the sport for now. goodnight. 0n on an otherwise cloudy day we saw some late spells of sunshine across southern parts of england, and a glorious sunset here in portland earlier on today. the cloud has been building over the past few hours and the most it is a cloudy and increasingly windy night ahead with some outbreaks of rain, we will talk about that in a moment. the weekend to come, mild, windy sunshine and, also some persistent rain across northern and western scotland, and that initially comes courtesy of this cold front which will be sliding its way slowly southwards as the night wears on as it runs into
this area of high pressure it will become a weakening feature, but outbreaks of rain across the central pa rt outbreaks of rain across the central part of scotland and working its way into northern ireland and the far north of england, behind it some clearer skies showers further south, tend to keep a lot of cloud it should stay mainly dry, and all the uk will be frost free, which is holding up annually between 3— eight celsius. tomorrow increasingly windy, showers slowly citing southwards, more persistent rain arriving in two northern and western scotland, gradually sinking down into the far north of england later in the day, maybe into far north wales as well. and increasingly windy day, these are wind strength through afternoon, strength of 40—50 miles an hour through scotland. it will be a mild but windy day, most of us between 10— 12 celsius. increasingly windy as we go into sunday. these ice avaaz coming closer together gives you an indication of the strength of the wind —— isobars. persistent rain for a time as we go into sunday. as the
front thinks southwards, once again it will tend to weaken so any showers will fizzle out. cold air returning to sever scotland. for much of the uk —— southern scotland. much of the uk some bright and sunny spells, quite windy, strong gust of 30-40 mph, 50-64 north spells, quite windy, strong gust of 30—110 mph, 50—61! north and western scotland. and here it will start to turn coldest, showers will be wintry for a time further south holding on to milder conditions. not for long, that milder yellow ware becomes more confined to south—western fringes, these blue colours start to dig down across the uk, so through the week and things will start to turn colder. there will be sunshine around, these are city forecasts over the next few days, noticed a drop in temper to wherever you are and by the end of the week some of the showers we will be seeing could be wintry in nature. good night. this is bbc news, i'm ben bland.
our top stories: president trump says he won't declare a national emergency to build a wall on the border with mexico, meaning no end in sight to the us government shutdown. it the easy way out. but congress should do this. this is too simple. it is too basic. and congress should do this. heavy snow causes more widespread disruption in many parts of central europe, with many mountain villages evacuated. a 13—year—old girl from wisconsin, held captive since her parents were murdered in october, has managed to escape. a man has been charged. an emotional andy murray says his last tournament could be as early as next week, with a hip injury forcing the end of his career.
